Speaker of the House of Representatives Hanafy El-Gebaly said on Tuesday that Gulf security is “a red line”, stressing Egypt's rejection of any attempts to hinder the freedom of navigation in the Arabian Gulf and interfere in the internal affairs of the Arab World.
El-Gebaly was speaking during his meeting with Speaker of the UAE Federal National Council (FNC) Saqr Ghobash on the sidelines of his participation in the Vienna-hosted fifth World Conference of Speakers of Parliaments and the first Global Parliamentary Summit on Counter-Terrorism, according to a press release by the parliament.
El-Gebaly asserted the necessity of maintaining constant consultations and coordination between Egypt and the UAE to strengthen regional stability and security, saying he is looking forward to boosting the Egyptian-UAE parliamentary relations and intensifying cooperation between the Egyptian parliament and UAE national council.
Meantime, Ghobash hailed relations binding Egypt and the UAE at all levels and bilateral coordination in various fields and at regional and international events.
